Statement from ORCi:

Following trials with a number of formulas in 2019, the ORC are rolling out the use of Race Receivers to all formulas run on ORC circuits in 2020 with the exception of adult banger formulas (Junior Banger drivers will need to use them).

Race Receivers enable the Steward of the meeting to be in contact with all drivers at all times and has proven to assist with the safe, effective running of a meeting and races and the ORC are hoping that the introduction of these are seen as a major step forward by the Oval Racing Council.

A Race Receiver is an important piece of safety equipment like your helmet and overalls and it will be compulsory for drivers to have a working race receiver during a race – failure to have one will see you not being allowed to race.

Race receivers will be available to purchase from many stadium trackshops up and down the country and they are also available to purchase by mail order from Spedeworth through the link below;

The cost of these are £95 (Including VAT)

It will be mandatory to use race receivers at all ORC meetings in all formulas (with the exception of adult banger classes) from the 29 February 2020

The young 6-11 year old stars in the Ninja Karts stole the show at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday afternoon, providing some exciting championship racing during the meeting. Antrim’s Leyton Hughes took the Champion of Champions title against a quality international field, whilst Kilmore’s Ryan Berry raced home to land the Individual Achievement Award. Ellis Snow from England then took the honours in the feature final at the end of the afternoon.
Amongst the other race action Portadown’s World Champion Nigel Jackson claimed the Lightning Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup, Fionn Donnelly from Meath took the 1300 Stock Cars Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series Grand Final and Matthew McKinstry won a destructive Back to Basics Bangers final. The other winners at the meeting, sponsored by Midway Autopoint, Stirling Trophies and Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm, were Randalstown’s Sam McNeice in the Junior Productions and Birches driver Steven Haugh in the Superstox.

First up for the Ninja Karts was the Individual Achievement Award for those drivers yet to win a race in 2019. It was Ryan Berry who scorched away early on and was never caught as he took the win and the coveted shield ahead of Andrew Hawe and Riley Dawson-Stirling. That victory earned Ryan his entry in to the Champion of Champion event, which also boasted some very rapid English and Scottish visitors. Irish Champion Leyton Hughes was the one to watch as he raced clear for another impressive title win, with Berry excelling to hold onto second over the battling Toby Tyson and Finley Kew.

For the rest of the afternoon English driver Ellis Snow showed the others a clean pair of heels as he took victory in both the support heat and final, leading home Ryan Abernethy Jnr and Hawe in the feature race.

Strabane’s James McKinney took the opening heat for the Lightning Rods over World Champion Nigel Jackson, before Jackson starred in the slippery conditions he enjoys so well to take the second heat win over Ally Neill and Ronan McNally. The Tullyroan Challenge Cup final saw Jackson on pole and he was never headed as he took the title over McKinney and Vince Litter.
1300 Stock Cars
The heats for the 1300 Stock Cars were shared between Jack Kearney and Fionn Donnelly, the latter after on the road winner Josh McKinstry was docked two places for a jump start. They then lined up on aggregate series points order for the Grand Final of the Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series, with Nicky Lowry and Donnelly occupying the front row. A false start was called when Donnelly was much too quickly away at the first time of asking, and at the second attempt pole man Lowry got a puncture and was in big trouble straight away. Gareth Halliday then burst ahead early on, before Donnelly and then McKinstry had turns out front. Just as McKinstry looked the odds-on winner, Donnelly fought back and took the series win over McKinstry and Willie Stewart. The top three all received vouchers for race tyres courtesy of the series sponsors.

Another healthy field of Back to Basics Bangers produced three entertaining events, with the opener falling to John Goligher after he slipped past early pacesetter Stefan McClelland. Heat two saw all sorts of action around the track, with Goligher again slipping ahead to take the win over Tyler Goligher and McClelland.
The final was a bruising affair to say the least, with McClelland, Stephen Boyd, David Gurney and Tyler Goligher all having spells in the lead. Matthew McKinstry then hit the front and took the victory with there being no other classified finishers!

A trio of welcome newcomers in Abbie McKinstry, Hannah Monaghan and Matthew Weir bolstered a very healthy field of Junior Productions. Shane O’Connor and Sam McNeice clashed whilst disputing the lead in the opening heat, allowing James Stewart through to win over Mark Crawford. Heat two ended in controversial fashion, with star trio McNiece, Crawford and Sam Percy all docked by the stewards for jumping a restart, which handed a first ever Junior Production win to a delighted Lexi Crooks.
O’Connor led the way in the final, but this time McNeice made no mistake as he raced past to take a deserved win. Impressive novice graders O’Connor and Chelsy Rainey took second and third respectively, ahead of a relegated Crawford who again fell foul of a restart penalty.

Ed Davis took a clear win in the opening Superstox heat over Jordan Robinson, before Robinson went one better in heat two by taking the win over British Champ Lee Davison and Irish Champ Kyle Beattie.
The final though was all about Steven Haugh, as the former ProStocks multi-champion finally put his Superstox troubles behind him to land the victory at a canter. He finished well clear of runner up Davis, and Steven could well be one to watch in 2020.
Many thanks to our meeting sponsors, Midway Autopoint, Hollytree Farm and Stirling Trophies

It is with regret that DMC Race Promotions announce that the ProStocks formula will not be continuing with us in 2020. For ten years the formula was one of the success stories on our circuits with some huge turnouts, but recently numbers have dwindled to a level that we can no longer sustain going forward. A number of the drivers currently racing have also indicated that they will be competing in other formulas next season, so we have unfortunately decided not to offer dates to the class in 2020.

The ProStocks have produced some fantastic racing, and a number of major champions, since being introduced back in 2009, and we hope that the current drivers can use their machinery in the Rookie Bangers formula with a little modification, or indeed sell them to Scotland where the formula will continue.

The ProStocks have now been removed from our Tullyroan Oval fixture on December 29th, and will be replaced by the 2.0 Hot Rods.

DMC Race Promotions would like to thank all the drivers who have competed in the formula over the last decade, contributing to some very memorable racing.
